The Lyrics

Inside information informs me that Rick D took his wife, Mari D, to San Francisco this past weekend to celebrate her birthday. I got a smattering of details from the lucky lady and decided to combine that with a little bit of an appreciative plug for the good stuff they perform on open mic nights at the Espresso Garden's Coffee House in San Jose. Yeah, it an "inside" parody...wanna make something of it? Seriously, sometimes I just HAVE to do stuff like this for really nice people - can't help it...
As a Birthday fete for Mari D
San Francisco; went to see, with husband Rick
It was a breath of different air
Colorful adventures there; righteous scene
Later after dinner she did gallop
brandishing a horse head on a stick
Celebrate; makes you feel like you're still a girl

With utmost thought did Mr. D
plan out this treat most carefully for loving wife
The Duncan's love to dance and sing
Guitar and flute are played in sync; sounding great
Messrs. RAD and MAD do play fine music
Go to San Jose and share their fun
Yes, indeed, you'll agree their show is a ball!

Espresso Garden's; there they play
the audience there is always gay; no, NOT that way...
Their forte; it is comedy
Do funny stuff, performed with glee; the laughs abound
They practice hard; strive for perfection
does pay off, the crowd calls out for more
Now you see as the "D's" now do an "Encore"

Thank you, Paul. We had a good time. I wasn't aware until I saw this that she was having a "behind my back" affair with you, spilling every gossipy detail of our private life. So, what am I going to do about it?How about this? Flutists are so insecure. How do I deal with that? What can I say to assure her.......the other day, when we were doin' it , she said......oh, I'll send you a private message.

Great tribute to two great writers, Paul. And Rick, that was quite an "inside" comment, also :-)
